Joost Van Aken Leaving in the Summer


Recommended Posts

Glad he’s going. He’s absolutely poo ! Behind Iorfa, Lees, Dunkley, Hutchinson, Urhoghide, Borner. Even Brennan looks a more able centre back to me! Good riddance.

I remember his first game for us, and he was pinging balls 60/70 yards to our wingers feet, and I remember thinking “ god he looks good!” ...

 

then it slowly went down hill from there, and then the United game happened, and that was game over for him. 
 

Sadly not strong enough for this league. He might do well in somewhere like Itialy where it’s slower and less physical.

Most footballers are pretty skinny, I wouldn’t get too carried away with his build. His big big issue was always his defensive footwork, evident from the first game he played. He drove constantly from the wrong foot which meant he was caught ‘ flat footed’ all the time. I haven’t seen a defender have that at this level. 
 

think he will end up in Middle East or USA , he will be ok out there.

Sure i read somewhere we paid £2.5M , rising to £4M with add ons which presumably havent been triggered.

 

Either way it was far too much , and a shocking example of our "recruitment".

 

I would offer him a settlement now , and any cash saved could go toward an out of contract left back.

I wish him all the best - he wasn’t very good, but it’s certainly not his fault that we hopelessly overpaid for him 

 

I would imagine DC paid him what his agent told him to pay him.

It's not wise booking a foreign holiday just yet. Maybe next year will be better.

I'm afraid you're totally wrong ........

If a player isn't quite up to Championship standard, but gets recommended by our advisors and scouts, and purchased by our Chairman, then assessed daily by our coaching setup and our managers and then played in Championship games, surely the last person to be hurling hate at is Joost Van Aken?



Stay classy ffs

A nobody.
